Thinking of exploring the sloughs in Redwood City this Sunday. I haven't been here since they installed the flow-restrictors.
Since it use to take me about 4 hours to do this paddle, and high tide is 1:11, plan is to launch a little after 10 AM. This would give us enough time to go through the Corkscrew Slough at slack tide and hit the Smith restrictors with a little current.
I've built in some extra time so we may have to wait if we are too fast or we can opt to shoot the restrictors/rapids. We cannot get out of the boats in the Corkscrew Slough so make sure your coffee's done its business before leaving.
Besides usually paddling gear, you will need food/drinks for lunch and snacks. There are no rentals nearby. If interested, please sign up or post your questions below and I will post more details.
